Beautiful Scenery

The shoreline makes tubing the Guadalupe River a pleasure to behold.  It meanders through Texas hill country including oak and cedar forests.  Stopping for lunch or a break on its banks makes the trip an even more pleasant experience. 

Rainbow and Brown Trout Fishing

Many outdoors enthusiasts come here for tubing the Guadalupe River one day and fishing for rainbows and browns in the same waters the next day. Quality fishing can be had throughout the summer because the river temperatures are cool enough to sustain healthy, active fish.
